Amanda Reid has defended her C2 time trial title with a world record performance on her way to winning two gold medals at the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Milton, Canada.
In a time of 39.035, Reid incredibly lowered her own best time by half-a-second to claim the time trial world title before going on to take home her second rainbow jersey in the C2 scratch race.
After the race, Reid dedicated her victory to her grandfather who passed away on the morning the team were scheduled to depart Australia.
“This race was one of the hardest races I’ve had to do, this race was for him,” Reid stated after her first gold.
“The world record was just the icing on top of the cake after the last few weeks.”
